I'm An Olympian

The 1993 movie Cool Runnings was loosely based on the very real 1988 Jamaican bobsled team. It was both funny and inspirational. And now it’s been songified with AutoTune.

Yeah, that was the Winter Games, but the song will get you pumped up to root for the underdogs at the 2016 Rio Olympics. -via HuffPo

"Loosely based" is a euphemism for "completely fictional". The only thing the movie has in common with the true story is that there was a Jamaican bobsled team in the Calgary Olympics that year, and they crashed. Everything else, beginning to end, was fabricated to make a good kid's story, and doesn't bear even the slightest commonality with the actual events.
